There are nine Public School, supported bu a fund arising from lots of
ground within the city of Saint Louis, granted by Congress for the support
of public instruction. This fund, as well as the schools, is managed by a
Board of President and Directors, consisting of two members chosen by the
people, from each ward of the city. The following are the names of the
teachers of the several schools, and the average number of scholars in each,

These Schools are all free, in a flourishing condition, and under the con-
trol of able and well qualified instructors.
This Institution is situated on a commanding eminence, about five miles
from Saint Louis, and is surrounded in all directions by a landscape, which,
for extent and beauty of scenery, has scarcely an equal in the Western
country. The location has been selected with great judgement, as well as
taste; being sufficiently near to the city to enjoy all of its advantages, and
yet sufficiently remote to avoid the evils incident to a large and rising
metroplis. The principal buildings, which are of brick, consist of a main
edifice, seventy feet long and four stories high, with which are connected
two wings, of equal length, and three stories in height; thus affording
ample room and every convenience for the various purposes of the Institu-
tion. The libraries, accessible to the various students, contain about four
thousand volumes; and a cabinet of valuable specimens, to illustrate the
natural sciences,enables the student in that department to do full justice
to the various topics which he discusses.
It is the great design of this foundation, to combine a high standard of
general education with domestic discipline, and systematic religious su-
perintendence. While the course of studies embraces all the branches of
the most finished English, classical, and mathematical education, the in
ternal arrangements are essentially those of a well-ordered Christian family,
in which strict attention is paid to the habits and manners of the students,
as well as to their moral and intellectual culture. Particular prominence
will be given to the department of modern languages, and every possible
facility afforded to those who are preparing for Holy Orders. The religious
principles of the Institution are a strict adhesion to the doctrines and wor-
ship of the Protestant Episcopal church; but members of all Christian de-
nominations are cheerfully received, and are only required, in connection
tober, and ends, at Commencement, on the last Thursday of July. The
public examinations of all the classes begin on the Monday immediately
preceding Commencement, and continue three days. It will be seen that
there is but one vacation in the year, which embraces the months of August
and September. The usual academic degrees are conferred at the annual
Commencement, upon such students as are found qualified to receive them;
and literary merit is encouraged and distinguished by appropriate and
payable, in all cases, semi-annually, in advance. This sum includes, not only
board and tuition, but also fuel, lights, use of beds and furniture, attendance
of servants; together with the necessary quantity of washing and mending.
It is worthy of special observation, that there are no extra charges, with the
exception of a small additional pension for lessons in the modern languages,
and for the exclusive use of private rooms. Candidates for Holy Orders,
the sons of clergymen, and Indian youths, pay only one hundred dollars per
be agreeable at all times except Sundays. The most minute information
can be readily obtaines by application to any member of the Board of
Trustees, or the College Faculty.

The names of the officers of fourof the former, and of two of the latter,
have been furnished for insertion; but, lest they might be mistaken, by
strangers, as all of each that there were in the place, I have concluded to
insert none of them. As their insertion is a matter that concerns the com-
panies themselves, or their officers, a triffle more than it does the balance
of the world, their ommission is wholly attributable to themselves, or rather,
to the remissness or difference of the secretaries of those companies who
furnished no statement, and by which I am subjected to the necessity of
apologizing to those who did furnish statements, or abstracts.
